|Wednesday night walk with Charlie - sometimes this place is alright|
Why Do NPR Reporters Have Such Great Names? This article is amusing, even if it doesn't mention Northwest Public Radio host Thom Kokenge (sounds like Cocaine!). I blogged about him way back when we lived in Idaho and it's amazing how many hits still come in from people Googling his name. Actually, it's not amazing, it sadly accounts for a large portion of traffic here, but whatever.
Woman eaten by vultures after falling off a cliff - so horrifying. I love hiking, but I tend to err on the side of
caution overly paranoid. There have been a few situations *canyonlandscoughcanyonlands* where it would have been so easy to slip on a loose pebble and totally eat it down a 1000 foot sheer rock face, but I try to avoid those because, you know, vultures.
What fitness experts eat for breakfast - this was super interesting, but didn't really give a sense of portions. Sure, if you exercise all day for your job, you can eat all that food. But should I really be eating that much food? Because I do...but I really like breakfast (clearly) and get a little nauseous if I don't eat lunch by 11. People are always saying "oh, just have a mid-morning snack," but I really hate snacking and can't seem to bring myself to be one of those people who eats six small meals.
Utah kidnapping victim Elizabeth Smart's stance against abstinence-only sex education - she's speaking out about the kind of message from society that I really worry about if I were to raise a kid here in Utah. Kind of a heavy topic, and obviously not something I would have to think about for a long time since there's no baby happening up in here at this point in time, but it's a real concern. Regardless of what I try to teach a kid about sex, and it's clearly not going to want to hear anything from me, I don't want my hypothetical child to absorb some kind of unhealthy, puritan attitude towards good old fashioned doin' it.
New Jersey. Diner. Murder Plot. Sounds like a Sopranos episode, but this is real life, people. Made me a little homesick just in time for a trip home.
Womanspeak: What we say versus what we mean - I am completely and utterly guilty of the following two transgressions:
Reality: I am about to tell you the dumbest story you’ve ever heard. It probably won’t have a point but I’m going to make you listen to the whole thing because I love the way my own voice sounds.
Words: Was I super annoying last night?
